- The Crystal That Vanished the Dwarf
City Arts & Lectures presents Patton Oswalt
Join us for City Arts & Lectures annual series "On Arts" which will directly benefit the 826 Valencia Scholarship Program. Self-professed “comedy nerd” Patton Oswalt is an actor, stand-up comedian, voice-over artist, and author. Best-known for his appearance on the sitcom King of Queens, and as the voice of Remy the Rat in Pixar’sRatatouille, Oswalt has also appeared in the movies Big Fan and Young Adult, and on the television shows Two and a Half Men and The United States of Tara. He created the stand-up tour The Comedians of Comedy. Patton’s book, Zombie Space Wasteland, is a memoir of sorts with essays on everything from Edgar Allen Poe to Dungeons & Dragons, graphic comics, and screenplays written by Oswalt’s alter ego, Neill Cumpston.
